Now that many MBA entrance exams around the corner, many aspirants have repeatedly been asking me about the ways to prepare for the Current Affairs for exams like SNAP, IIFT, XAT, and TISSNET. So, in this answer, I am sharing my experience with the preparation of current affairs for MBA entrance exams.

In 2017, when I was preparing for the MBA entrance exams, current affairs was the most dreadful section for me. I was very much tensed about my preparation for exams like SNAP, XAT, and TISSNET because all these exams had one section of current affairs. And in all these exams, current affairs had a significant weight and could become the cause of failure. To add insult to the injury, I had never been very curious about the current affairs till then.

So, I started looking for resources for the preparation of current affairs for all these exams and interviews thereafter. Many people suggested me reading the newspapers, and it helped. But there was a problem with that. I did not have enough time every day to read the newspaper for 2 hours. Also, it was not easy to retain all the news. And so, I started looking for some other resources that would offer me crisp material on the current affairs.

Luckily, I came across two such platforms. They helped in enhancing my general awareness for specific MBA entrance exams as well as for interviews. So, besides reading the newspaper, I would suggest you use the following two resources for the preparation of the Current Affairs for your MBA entrance exams and interviews.

Current Affairs for MBA

Current Affairs by Kalyan Sir on YouTube:

Kalyan sir is a renowned faculty who teaches IAS aspirants. He runs a free channel on YouTube for current affairs. Every day, he discusses the current affairs for about 10-15 minutes on this channel. These videos cover the important news of every day from the exams and interview point of view. He explains each concept so lucidly that you will start finding current affairs very intriguing.

Current Affairs by GKmojo:

I feel it is best for the MBA entrance exams. They offer exam-specific courses like they have a separate course for SNAP, IIFT, XAT, and TISSNET at a very minimal amount (I don’t remember exactly, but it was around Rs 300 in 2017).

In 2017, I took the jumbo course which had material for all the MBA entrance exams. That cost me Rs 500. This course helped me immensely, and I started feeling confident in the current affairs section.

Some of the highlights of the GKmojo course:

Well-divided topics of Current Affairs to enable systematic learning:

I remember they shared with me around 10 PDFs, each for a specific current affairs topic. These PDFs had a very crisp and important content for each MBA entrance exam.

Multiple exam-specific MCQ quizzes almost every day:

They give a 10/20 question quiz every day so that you are able to retain what you have learned from the PDF notes.

I feel because of this course, I could score reasonably well in the GK section of SNAP and TISSNET. So, I can vouch for this course. It will help you prepare the current affairs for all the MBA entrance exams without feeling the need to resorting to multiple resources.

Kalyan Sir:

When should I start preparing for Current Affairs?

I started watching Kalyan sir’s video from June 2017 and joined GK mojo course in July 2017, and used to read one pdf in a day or two. It helped me remain confident by the time the SNAP exam approached. 

So, I feel you should start giving at least 30 minutes daily for the preparation of current affairs from now onwards. It will avoid your growing panicky when the exam approaches.

All the best!
